  1. Perfect. I made a note of it, will do. Partway through the youtube video now. Thanks!
  2. Okay! Good to know. I was worried they might instantly fall apart into dust, since I paid so little for them. Mine should be here in a couple days as well. Thankfully, I happen to be a female with tiny hands.
  3. Perfect, thanks for the help. Will do!
  4. This is all great information! And honestly, most of it I haven't come across yet! Thank you for taking the time to write it all out! Thanks!
  5. Will do! Thanks for the tip!
  6. Yeah they were more than double the price on Ebay, but I found this set on amazon for way cheaper, I have no idea why. Hopefully they work for us! After we've learned to sharped of course.. Sharp and sharp, copy that.
  7. Hey Gang, I've done some research on which tools I will need to start learning how to work with leather. There is a Tandy relatively close, but little in the way of much else. I ended up purchasing a kit online for very cheap ($25 CAN), and I'm hoping the quality won't be too terrible. I think it was a good decision, with several of the tools being on my list. I'm sure there are some in the kit I didn't necessarily need. Thoughts? I'm interested in being able to make wallets, knife sheaths, harnesses, and belts. I still planned on buying a mallet, saddlers needles, thread, wax, glue, utility and precision knife..
